On the very second day of 13th International Children’s Film Festival, the main venue, the central public library was almost taken over by a bunch of enthusiastic school kids from South Point School and College, Motijheel Government Boys’ High School and St. Gregory’s High School & College. The first part of the festival was very lively as those charming kids roamed around the premise with glee.
Workshops and More….
Around 11:00 AM, children’s film society held a workshop conducted by filmmaker Nehal Quraishi. The workshop took place at Alliance Française. He spoke to the young filmmakers about some crucial technic of filmmaking. Basically, the workshop is about the theories of cinematography. Later that afternoon, a workshop on mental wellbeing was conducted by Anne Anthonia Baroi, a counselling psychologist and a lecturer of the Psychology department at BRAC University which was also at Alliance Française. Starting with a smile, she spoke about how necessary it is to feel good, just the way we speak about being so.
Today almost 18 films were screened on Shawkat Osman Hall, central public library. And more on three different venues. As this film festival encourages children and young filmmakers, the child filmmaker section consists of a few short films. And the rest of the films will be screened at different venues on different days throughout the whole festival.
